This is Bandit. He is a 1 year old Long-Haired Dachshund puppy. I am his first and only groomer. Bandit is a little bit shy around strangers, so when I first get there, I get down on the floor to show him that I’m friendly. Having never been groomed before, he was a little nervous, but I’m always very patient with him yet firm to show him that I’m in control and know what I’m doing. Every time I come back to see him, he gets more comfortable with me and the grooming process.
